Congratulations parents and guardians, as the Skylanders Giants hunt for giants figures may be drawing to a close for you. Activision has just announced that two of the last three giants figures have been released into the wild. I’ve confirmed with their PR representative that they have been shipped to retail. Search carefully and thoroughly and you might just be rewarded with your own Thumpback and Eye-Brawl at $14.99 a pop.
Skylanders Giants two latest giants cover the undead and water elements. The most in demand is Eye-Brawl, and with good reason. He looks really cool. He’s basically a golem with a gigantic eye attached to where the head should be. Apparently, they were originally two separate entities that were rivals, then they eventually teamed up to become Eye-Brawl. The other figure, Thumpback, isn’t nearly as cool He’s a giant whale pirate. He was doing it for the fishing though, and not the pirating. He fell overboard while fishing one day, the crew and ship he was part of were banished and he then became a Skylanders Giants hero.
Which means Ninjini is now the last, unreleased Skylanders Giants giant. She’s also the only girl of the bunch. Coincidence? Probably. I’m guessing there are a lot of people out there interested in her though and perhaps now holding vigil while awaiting her release. I hope you have another magic element Skylander, because that’s the realm she covers. Of course, the wait to buy her shouldn’t be too long. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was released before June 2013.
I’m going to close out this Skylanders Giants announcement with a screenshot of Eye-Brawl, who I will be hunting for later this afternoon. Pick up as many Thumpbacks as you want when you storm the stores people, just save one Eye-Brawl for me!
